cos Seeqpod is amazing-I can't believe more people don't use it. It's like YouTube for music, but much more extensive/easier to use/nicer to look at etc. I didn't bring any music into work today, and using seeqpod i made a 25 track best of belle and sebastian playlist type thing, which has been on repeat all day. And it took me about 2 minutes to do.
Anyway, Warner are having a laugh, surely? I suppose seeqpod is like tv links, but given how different the music/tv business and consumption models are I can’t see a parallel. Is this really that different to listening to tracks on MySpace, other than that this isn’t necessarily sanctioned by the artist? Anyway, given how much the industry has struggled to put across their point on illegal downloading, this is surely a proverbial Mnt Everest for them. Sean, as a record label type, does this bother you? Is Seeqpod a good way of spreading your acts’ music to a wider, potentially paying audience, or yet another reason for people not to have to buy music?
it's so good!
surely there's no problem as you can't download the tracks? as you said, it's just like listening to a track on a band's myspace!
and $150,000 per song? that's ridiculous!
by the sword!
not the same idea?
if there's two of these sites, there must be more..
i've not seen many either
that artists/labels/publishers haven't given permission for their tracks to be on there, nor will they be getting paid. I very much doubt that Seeqpod has all the relevant licences.
The difference with Myspace I imagine is that the artists/labels/publishers have consented to that use of their music (and have more than likely put the tracks there themselves).
You may not be able to download the songs, but you can listen - artists and writers should get paid for that...
